WINEMAKING: The grapes, cultivated with great care and strict control to reduce production to 4.000kg/ha, were harvested at night in separated lots by varieties and taken to the winery, selected, clean and separated from the sticks. The berries were poured, in full grain without pressing, into Seguin Moreau French oak vats for fermentation with temperature control. After a long fermentation period, the wine is transferred to S: Moreau oak barrels for the malolactic fermentation, settling and rounding in wood during 12 to 24 months depending on the variety.
The different varieties are blended and bottled at the state to age in the cellar for at least a period of 5 years before it is released.
